How to Make a JPEG Smaller to Email It
Making a JPEG image smaller so you can include it in an email message is advisable, because many email users have program-related size limitations on the images and files they can receive as attachments. Reducing the image size of a JPEG image reduces the JPEG file size. You can make the JPEG smaller using the Microsoft Paint program. Microsoft Paint is installed, by default, with all Windows operating systems.
Right-click on the JPEG image to show the File context menu.
Click the “Open With” option and then click the “Microsoft Paint” option in the list of available programs. The JPEG opens in the Paint application.
Click on the bottom right corner of the JPEG image.
Drag the bottom right corner inward toward the center of the graphic. The image shrinks in size.
Click the “Paint” option on the top navigation bar and then click “Save” to save your changes.
